Mr. Pupularity

It's too soon to post about Boz again. I know. But this is big news.

Boz won third place in One Colorado's pet popularity contest! He even gets a prize! I don't know what it is yet but I'll find out next week. And although Boz is clamoring to find out ("what'd I win? what'd I win?") I know it's not the loot that matters to him. It's the love.

The other winners will receive their prizes today at One Colorado's Pet Day from 1-4pm. Boz has to miss the festivities because he's not a crowd-loving guy. But he sends his congratulations to the winners: runner-up Kirby the Bunny, and the champ, Sophie the cat!

In a side note, I've known Sophie's person for about 12 years. I've never met Sophie, of course. Her star entourage is impenetrable.

By way of a segue, there's a new photo blog in town called Seeing Sierra Madre. Blogger Adele is fun and funny and even seems to think I could get away with something called Boz Daily Photo. Of course, she's got Spencer.

Mazal tov Boz!! You are a real winner.

Boz looks so distinguished here with his gray hair.

dive said...

Yay! Way to go, Boz! He's a real star, and a truly handsome gentleman.

LGreenWriter said...

Oh, what a handsome boy! Please tell him "congrats" for me! ; )

Kalei's Best Friend said...

I for one am not surprised that he has won!... and NO, its never to soon for a photo or a post on your best buddy.

Cathy Hudspeth said...

This is an amazing portrait of Boz! Almost looks like an oil painting.

BaysideLife said...

Such a handsome fella. He looks almost regal in this photo. Congratulation Boz!

Jilly said...

Oh well done, dear Boz. I'm with Dive - he truly is a handsome dog and look at those kind, intelligent eyes. Woof to Boz from my three ... and me x

Speedway said...

Paws up for Boz! The yellow leaves in the background seem to add to his award-winning aura.

Michael Coppess said...

Hey, Boz is Top Dog!

Pasadena Adjacent said...

Boz has a widows peak - such a handsome boy

Petrea Burchard said...

Good morning everyone, thank you! Boz is pleased about his victory. Gracious, too, even though he was beaten out by a cat and a rabbit. From his sunny spot this morning he sends greetings: a soft lick of your palm and a quiet sigh. He is thrilled.

Bellis said...

Can I have his autograph?

Thanks for telling us about Adele's blog. I'm hooked already.

Susan Campisi said...

Congrats, Boz! I love that an elder statesman was one of the winners, but Tommy & Louise both think Boz should've come in first. Still, we're all proud of you, Boz. Enjoy the limelight - from the cozy comfort of your home, of course.

Petrea Burchard said...

You may have an autograph, Bellis. Boz left several on the kitchen floor just now. Isn't Adele fun? A great addition to the SGV blogging family.

Thanks, Susan. Like most dogs, Boz likes limelight.

Adele said...

Oh my goodness!! Thanks so very, very much for mentioning my little blog. Spencer and I are both beyond appreciative. (Well, I am, for sure, and his constantly-happy tail seems to be conveying the same message!). Many congrats to Boz, for his well-deserved award. It will look great on the About Me section when he starts Boz Daily Photo.

Petrea Burchard said...

Thanks, Adele! I hope a lot of people find your blog. I really enjoy it.

altadenahiker said...

He looks like he's composing a sonnet. Or channeling Bronte. "Oh, my wild sweet Cathy..."

(Boz, you're #1, but too much of a gentleman to ask for a recount.)

Margaret said...

With no disrepect to the other winners, I must say that I seriously think Boz was robbed.

Katie said...

Great photo of Boz. Such a sweet face! I hope his prize is something he can enjoy while lounging around the house. Margaret is right; and of course Boz is always number one here.

Petrea Burchard said...

Karin, I searched the Shakespeare concordance for a mention of the word "dog" in the sonnets. None, do you believe it? I'll have to help Boz write one of his own.

It's my fault, Margaret. I'm not aggressive enough as a marketer.

Katie, everything Boz enjoys he enjoys while lounging.

Petrea Burchard said...

Except running. He loves to run, even if only for a few yards. Or feet.

Adele said...

Thank you again, Petrea. Thanks to you, I've had quite a few new visitors today!

Petrea Burchard said...

All they have to do is find you, Adele, and they'll come back.

Irina said...

It is amazing how people are inventive in the vanity field))).
Congrats to Boz! and big sugar bone.

Ms M said...

What a great portrait of Boz! He's a true winner, any way you look at it. Yay, Boz! Let us know what prizes he won :-)

TheChieftess said...

Ah heck Petrea!!! I broke all the blog rules and posted Kelly twice this weekend!!! But then, she was the Birthday girl on Saturday!!!

Boz is particularly handsome in this shot...and I'd follow Boz Daily Photo!!!

Petrea Burchard said...

Ha! Don't tempt me.

A true champion.
